The Tauck Difference

This was our first river cruise and it far exceeded our expectations. Every day brought a new adventure - whether touring new places or viewing the beautiful scenery from onboard the Treasures. The Tauck people and the local guides were knowledgeable and provided important historical and cultural perspective. Everything was first class. We thought the classical music performances rank among the most memorable part of the trip, along with the incredible food, service and attention to the smallest detail shown by Tauck. We also made some wonderful friends with whom we intend to keep in touch.
